Kongsberg Rolls Out Flexview Sonar for Small Observation ROVs

Kongsberg Mesotech is introducing the Flexview multibeam sonar designed specifically for small observation class ROVs.

According to the company, the Flexview sonar provides distortion-free images at a range of up to 200 metres over a 140° sector, reducing the time it takes to search for and locate targets.

The Flexview’s removable transducer is the first of its kind, offering field replacement of a damaged transducer in the unlikely event of a catastrophic impact. It also allows for potential new transducer configurations to be exchanged in the future, depending on the job being performed, Kongsberg explains.

“Kongsberg Mesotech is excited to make target acquisition at long range a reality for Observation-Class ROV users with our new sonar. During our customer focus groups, we heard that users wanted the maximum range possible with good resolution. We are confident that Flexview is the solution to this request and will bring significant benefits,” said Konrad Mech, director, Subsea Channel Management, Kongsberg Maritime. “We are also aware that a sonar can be damaged during deployment and removal, impacting field operations and requiring factory repair with very long cycle times. Flexview offers customers rapid field replacement of the transducer simply by removing four cap screws, without compromising integrity of the electronics housing.”
